Massive construction- be advised

Posted 4-Dec-2017 on Hotels
I knew going in ( via information gathered on another website) that this hotel was under renovations. What became quickly apparent was that the construction is almost at a standstill, and the job site is sloppy/treacheous beyond belief. Its like they ran out of money, and are hoping someday to finish. In the meantime, rooms of varying degree of decay are being rented out. Don't get me wrong, the inside of the room itself is reasonably clean. its the appearance of the hotel that's troubling. Dark rooms as the outside glass is actually plywood in many rooms, and the overall feel is depressing. Honestly, I don't think they should be operating like this, its not fair to folks who are looking for a hotel experience. For me, I needed exactly 8 hrs to sleep somewhere, so this was fine. I will also say it was priced somewhat accordingly. Heat did conk out sometime during the night, so when I got up it was really cold, but by then i just needed to get back on the road.

Our Stay in Oshawa

Due to extensive renovations, the area was not as pleasing as hoped. However, our room was clean. The beds were very comfortable. It was noisy but that settled down.

OMG...do not stay here!

Posted 4-Dec-2017
Pros: run down, not clean, no elevator to second floor, looks abandoned
Cons: everything
Location: everything nearby was closed
The pictures that are online are misleading and is not what your presented with onsite. I was traveling with my dad who is 87 years old. When we arrived, the building looked abandoned; the exterior is all boarded up, and there is construction material littering the parking lot. The parking lot is not well lit and it made us feel unsecure. Entering the hotel, you notice how dirty and run down the building is. You require a pass card to get into the building but the door was not locked. They have two floors that are in use but no elevator available. Since it was late, we decided to stay until I noticed small black bugs on the pillow and mattress. I immediately went to the reception with photos and cancelled our stay and left the hotel that night.

Room was clean

Room was clean and breakfast was reasonable. The construction is the biggest drawback

Under construction. Old Eric is fine but not very clean. First room smelled like a bar,cigarette smoke smell very heavy. Not many choices of breakfast items no fresh fruit and little choice of cold cereal Other room could have cleaner especially the bathroom

Under construction without knowing

Posted 3-Dec-2017
The hotel was under construction and we were given no knowledge prior to arriving. Our room was clean and orderly but the rest of the hotel and the amenities were in shambles.

entire facility under construction without Notice

Posted 3-Dec-2017
Only advertised Pool under construction - entire facility. I would assume once done it will be nice but until then - pretty bad.

Decent hotel with good pricing.

Posted 3-Dec-2017
Pros: Close to the 401 and price was great. There's a shopping plaza up the street. The breakfast was good and the coffee was better than most I've tried.
Cons: The hotels under renovation so improvements are coming. From what I see from the future improvements it's going to be quite nice and modern.
Location: Close to downtown and the lake. There's a golf course across the street. Foodland Dominos pizza and Subway, 24 hour Mac's store up the street.
This hotel is under renovation and it's going to be great when it's done. Price was good considering what other hotels charge in the area. I stayed 2 days and it was quiet. Room was more than suitable. Large tv, mini fridge and coffee maker keurig in room.
